    Building your Resume:

    • Activities and Experiences Sheet
      • The downloadable form is a MS Word Document. It is suggested that you download it, complete it by typing in the answers, save it for future updating, and print the completed form and bring it or email it to your counselor. By typing it in Word, you will be able to say everything you want to say in the column, "Accomplishments and Experiences," within that activity, as the table will expand to as many lines as you need. You may also print out a blank form and complete it by writing on it. 
      • If your computer does not have MS Word, you can download this PDF file so that you can write on it - Activities and Experiences PDF format.
